    Hello this will our first time to do a cruise . We are doing the 5 day Halloween cruise. Can someone plse break down the dress code Do we really have to be in suits and dresses, no sandals at dinner? We just want to relax! can someone help and explain

    Ahoy, Angelica!

    It looks like you've chosen a fabulous cruise for your first magical voyage! I love the holiday sailings because they are sprinkled with some extra pixie dust, so get ready for five SPOOK-tacular nights at sea, Angelica! 

    Since your cruise is almost here, I'm sure your mind is on packing. You'll want to plan for two cruise casual nights, one pirate-themed night, one Halloween-themed night (costumes encouraged, but optional) and one optional dress-up night. For the cruise casual nights, my daughter and I usually wear a comfortable sundress or nice jeans with a cute top (skirts or capris are fine too!) with sandals. My son and husband like to wear either a nice pair of khaki shorts or slacks with a collared shirt. We normally dress-up for pirate night or wear something to go with the red bandanas that are given out onboard. We've sailed on a Halloween on the High Seas cruise and enjoyed dressing up for Mickey's Mouse-Querade Party and wore our costumes to dinner. Cruise casual attire is also ok for Pirate Night and for the Halloween festivities if you don't want to dress-up. And the optional dress-up night is completely up to you! If you want to be more formal on this evening, you can bring a nice dress or pantsuit for yourself and a suit or sports jacket and slacks for the guys in your crew. If you don't want to dress-up, you can just plan to wear your dressiest cruise casual outfits for this night. 

    Angelica, the only restaurant that has a dress code on the Disney Wonder is Palo, the adult-only venue. If you reserve a meal here, you will need to follow their guidelines, which are similar to the optional dress-up options I described above. Palo asks that no flip-flops, tennis shoes, graphic t-shirts, cut-offs, clothing with holes and swimsuit attire be worn. 

    I hope this helps!

    Have a WONDERful time!
